The PGA TOUR regular season concludes in Greensboro, NC as Sedgefield Country Club hosts the Wyndham Championship. Many players in the field are either holding on to their position, on the fringe, or outside of the playoff bubble (reserved for the top 70 players in the standings), so this weekend presents a final chance for many to qualify for playoff golf.
Here are 5 ball-strikers to play in the Tar Heel state this weekend
JT Poston (49th in FedEx Cup Standings)
-To Win Odds: +3300
-Top 10 Odds: +400
The site of his 1st career win on TOUR, Poston rolls into his native North Carolina in top form, posting three top-6 finishes in his last four starts. JT checks the form & course history boxes, not many weaknesses in the game of the sweet-swinging Carolina kid.
Brendon Todd (42nd in FedEx Cup Standings)
-To Win Odds: +5500
-Top 10 Odds: +600
The man lives on the fairway, ranked 10th on TOUR in “Driving Accuracy” and has carried a hot flat stick all season, 20th in “Strokes Gained Putting”. A solid ball striking weekend with the irons can vault BT up this leaderboard. Finished T2 at John Deere three weeks ago.
Billy Horschel (116th in FedEx Cup Standings)
-To Win Odds: +6000
-Top 10 Odds: +650
A literal horse for course bet on Billy, has made the weekend in 9/10 starts at Sedgefield with four top-30 finishes in a row at this property. Nearly won here in 2020, Horschel is hungry to advance to the playoffs, and he’ll have a chance at one his favorite TOUR stops.
Eric Cole (40th in FedEx Cup Standings)
-To Win Odds: +6600
-Top 10 Odds: +700
Sedgefield is a short course, not many bombers win out here. Cole looks like a great fit at this property, as he’ll rely on a hot putter to propel up the board. Ranked 3rd in “Putts Per Round” and 16th in “Scoring Average”, if Cole can find fairways, he’ll be a danger man.
Patrick Rodgers (38th in FedEx Cup Standings)
-To Win Odds: +8000
-Top 10 Odds: +750
After a brutal break landing in a fairway divot in a playoff 2 weeks ago, P-Rod played nicely in Minnesota, and has made the cut in 6/7 career starts at Sedgefield. The former Stanford star looks primed to pick up his first career win on TOUR any weekend now.
